This is a bulletproof cable modem. I personally have this and haven't rebooted it since installing it in October. This one doesn't have the puma6 chipset which plagues most of the 32x8 modems out there. Lowest price yet for this model.

The devices experience dropped packets and unnecessary spikes in latency. While gamers are most likely to be affected the most, it can actually be an issue for casual web browsers as well.

According to The Register, "The problem appears to be that the x86 CPU in the modem is taking on too much work while processing network packets. Every couple of seconds or so, a high-priority maintenance task runs and it winds up momentarily hogging the processor, causing latency to increase by at least 200ms and, over time, about six per cent of packets to be dropped. It affects IPv4 and IPv6 – and it spoils internet gaming and other online real-time interaction that need fast response times."

is this modem worth it to upgrade from the stock modem Spectrum gives you?

edit: and is there a reason why one wouldn't pay a little more for 32x8? like this one: https://smile.amazon.com/NETGEAR-...32x8+modem

Perfect timing! Was looking for a cable modem. I'm signing up for Xfinity and don't want to pay $11/month for their modem/router. I already have a decent router... Thanks!

The version TC-7610 with 8x4 channels is $39. That is good if your isp is selling you 100mb or less, No good for more than that.

I was kind of kicking myself because I literally ordered the TC7620 yesterday, but then I misread the original post thinking the TC7650 deal was cheaper.

Skimming the product descriptions, TC7620 can do up to 680 mbps dl speeds. TC7650 up to 1000 mbps.
